While this book was in the press three or four deaths occurred among members of the King Family, who are mentioned in the preceding pages. When possible these were inserted as the proof was read. The notices of two received too late for that are given below. There were also some paragraphs descriptive of persons which were inadvertently omitted. The following, to which my attention has been called by Miss Alice L. Priest, of Shenandoah, Iowa, who speaks from a personal acquaintance with those described, will supply some of these defects:

Harriet Lucinda Caldwell Burton (page 181), died March 25, 1908, at Corydon, Iowa, and was buried in New York, Iowa. As daughter, wife, mother, neighbor and friend she was a pillar of strength, an arm to be leaned on, a counselor to turn to, a stay in time of need. As physician's wife she was almost a second loved physician to their community.

Hannah Maria Caldwell Parker (page 182) like her brothers, was called by the second name. The natural sweetness, brightness and kindness of her spirit endured through life. A general favorite as a winning, pretty young woman, the later cares of a household did not limit her outlook and wide sympathies.

John Wesley Caldwell (page 186) had the soul of a poet, one of Nature's poets, and the physical appearance of one of the most refined and handsome of them. He loved Nature quietly, deeply, all his life; he could have walked with Wordsworth. With those who loved him tenderly and whom he tenderly loved, he rests among the Northfield hills he longed for.

Clara King Powers (page 285) was a most loving and gentle lady. She had a slender frame and soft, beautiful black eyes, with a tender winning, almost shy light in them. A sensitive face and soul, and all the graces that mark the gentlewoman of culture and refinement.

I have also to add the following:

Nelson Newton King (page 370) died at Suffield, Conn., April 23, 1908, from pneumonia, after a brief illness.

Henry Juneau King (page 382) married at Chicago, Ill., May 27, 1908, Mora Saxe, daughter of Albert E. Saxe.

Cameron Haight King Jr., (page 466) married at San Francisco, California, September 5, 1908, Isabel Dunblaine Conde, born June 7, 1883, daughter of the late George Meade and Cornelia (De Groot) Conde. Mr. Conde was for many years cashier of the Farmers and Mechanics Bank of San Francisco. Mrs. King, like her husband, attended Stanford University.


Mary King (page 212). The statement that this Mary King married (1) George Parsons, (2) James Harper Bartlett, is an error. So also is the same statement regarding her on page 149. The entire paragraph No. 252, page 212, should be omitted. She died unmarried. It was another Mary King who married (1) George Parsons (2) James Harper Bartlett. This is correctly set forth in No. 200. pages 230-232 and the issue of such marriages is there correctly given. See also page 153.
